2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pretty standard yellow-gold with a high, finegrained head. The nose is almost all fruit -- apple and peach with a touch of honey and malt syrup. Sweet on the palate, with more fruity notes, but surprisingly decent; it finishes like a typical lager, though slightly flat. I might not have known it was gluten-free, and thatís high praise.

Clear, pale golden yellow with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grain, corn, skunk and grass. Taste is sweetened corn flakes with a very minor hop element. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pale yellow, good head. Appears like most domestic pale lagers.. Nose is a bit skunky, lemon, earthy, and believe it or not a hint of coffee. Actually has some good flavors. Lemon, wheat, and a sweet honey-citrus on the end.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours straw with white head. Barn yard nose. Aroma of betrayal, as the label did NOT mention it being gluten-free. Tastes like a beer gone bad.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Sweet lemony citrus in the nose with a little PNW dry hopping, very enticing, with a super pale yellow pour with a short white head. Crisp, stern full lager body, hard but not unforgiving, and the sunniness helps soften things a bit. Taste is clean and fresh, light lemony citrus with faint breadiness at the end but itís hard water sailing to that point, thereís only some fizziness in the flat-leaning feel, and despite the Pilsner airs the better descriptor is definitely íPremium Lagerí.
Overall íOKí, but a gluten-free offering Iíd be ecstatic about finding if I had celiac -- it actually tastes like beer!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
More than I thought but at the same time lacking a lot. REally light in body and color. Slide off the tongue not leaving much impression.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow color with small white head. I smell fresh cut grass, some yeast and white bread. I taste all of the same with citrus.... It?s ok.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear pale gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded very quickly to a wispy partial film. The nose is not especially pleasant, itís very light for starters, then thereís a bit of an odd vegetal note, and a touch of honey sweetness. The flavor isnít going to fool anybody that they left out the malt. Itís thin and a little vegetal tasting and there arenít any perceptible hops at all. Finishes weird and weak with a slight chemical twang. Light bodied an fizzy with a short watery finish. Wouldnít recommend this one to anybody. If you have a gluten allergy, stick to hard alcohol.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle at the Mariott hotel bar. Why not. Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is very light, a little bready, maybe just a touch of hops, maybe. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet I guess, very mild, bready, a hint of grassy hops, with a very light bitter finish. Non-offensive, reminiscent of other pale lagers, but very bland. I suppose if you donít tolerate gluten, you will take what you can get.
